Blood and married into....

When you were 5 did you really understand the difference? I sure as heck didn't. But I should back up for a second. I have a huge family. My Grandma had 12 kids who each married and had children of their own. I am the youngest in my family so most of my "blood" Aunts and Uncles were married before I was born or while I was very young. So I grew up knowing that those people who had married into the family were my aunts or uncles and nothing more. I couldn't censor how I grew attatched to them.
A couple of these in-laws have since sepersted from their spouses but I still consider them my Aunts and Uncles. Their feelings changed mine did not.
Anyway I started a group webpage for my family and friends to talk to one another and share photos and what not. Then I invited everyone to come by and participate. I invited my Uncle T and his new wife D as well as his ex, my AUNT D. Well they both accepted the invite and started making comments. Here is were I should explain that he absolutely hates her for no good reason except that he is a very angry man, who has a deep and absolute temper. (To be fair, that is the only reason that I am aware of) Anyway My Aunt makes her first comment on the web page and in her comment she says:

Thanks for including me! I am having trouble trying to figure out how to read the messages and how to jump in. Plus, (I really don't want to piss off your Uncle T.) But, it's been soooooo long since I have talked to some of you. I really love reading from all of you.
My reply was this:

Of course we would include you. I don't really understand how that would bother Uncle T. I love you as my Aunt, that won't change, just like I love him and that won't change (Love you Uncle T).
His reply was this:

I think you all need to keep me out of this shit, you want to talk to her go ahead but do not make me your topic of conversation.
I mean it.This is done
right now !
This was unacceptable for me. One he had no right to come and cuss me out. And two I didn't say anything remotely uncomplimentary regarding him. I actually thought I said some really nice things. This would all seem really minor if not for the past several years. Everytime someone tries to include her or even speaks her name he BLOWS up and threatens to disown people. Going off on me on my own website was a final straw. I don't like being told how and who to talk to. The whole thing just had me furious last night.

For those of you who commented, don't give me too much credit, I think I slept on it more because I was unable to think straight then because of my good intentions. Thanks though.

But on to other things's feast time again:

Appetizer - What is one quality you really admire about yourself?

I am able to stand up for my self and say what I mean with out alienating people.

Soup - What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use?

Right now Aussie Mega. I love the smell!

Salad - Describe your favorite movie scene. You know, the one that just gets to you every time you watch it.

In Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken when Sonora finds the letters he sent her but she never recieved. I love that part. But I love the part where she does her first blind jump better.

Main Course - If you were a veggie, which one would you be, and why?
Uh Corn, because it tastes good. ;)

Dessert - If you could take a weekend trip within 100 miles of your current residence, where would you like to go?
Probably Astoria, It is really pretty there and I have had a thing for it every since I saw the Goonies for the first time.
